Who coded - I do not know
And I, an iOS fool, use it.

As you know, Audio CDs are protected against simple copying.

Having opened such a disk in the file manager, you will see only tracks (Track **. Cda):

Often, users need to convert Audio CD tracks to .mp3.

This can be done in many ways, for example, using iTunes.

Copy Audio CD Using iTunes:

- insert the CD into the drive,

- start the iTunes program,

- in the menu on the right in the section DEVICES select a cd

- press the button Import CD,

- in the dialog box Import Settings in the drop down list Importer select MP3 encoder (default - AAC encoder),

- in the dropdown list Customization select the desired sound quality,

- check the box Correct errors when reading an audio CD -> OK,

- wait until the process is complete.

ITunes converts Audio CD tracks to .mp3 correctly, with related information (including track and artist names).

The copied Audio CD will be added to the iTunes library (the disk address in Windows 7 is Users Username Music iPhone iTunes Media Music Compilations Album Name ).

What is required to burn discs?

A drive with a disc burning function. (To find out about the compatibility of your drive, select Edit> Preferences, click Advanced, then click Record. If the drive is listed, it is compatible.)

An iTunes playlist containing the music and videos you want to burn to disk. If the playlist contains purchases from the iTunes Store, you can record it to disk any number of times, provided that all objects are iTunes Plus songs. If some items are not iTunes Plus songs, you can record the playlist no more than seven times.

Blank disk. Some older CD players cannot play CD-RW discs (but can play CD-R discs). You can use DVDs on your computer, but most DVD players cannot read data DVDs. (RW stands for read-write and means that the disc can be erased and reused.)

What types of drives should I use?

To make audio CDs that fit most stereo systems, use CD-R discs. CD-RWs usually only work on computers.

To create a CD with MP3 files for playback on a computer or an MP3 CD player, use a CD-R, some MP3 players also accept CD-RWs.

If your computer is equipped with a DVD writer, you can burn playlists to DVD-R or DVD-RW. DVDs that you create using iTunes are only suitable for your computer (but not for DVD players).

In the library, new song files will appear next to the source files.

Convert songs and files to a folder or disk

Songs can be imported to iTunes while converting them. In this case, a converted copy of the file will be created in the iTunes library taking into account the iTunes settings.

To convert all songs in a folder or on a disk, follow these steps:

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. Mac: From the menu bar at the top of the computer screen, choose iTunes> Preferences.
    Windows: From the menu bar at the top of the iTunes window, choose Edit> Preferences.
  3. Click the "General" tab, and click "Import Settings" at the bottom of the window.
  4. Click the menu in the Importer section and select the encoding format to which you want to convert the songs.
  5. Click “OK” to save the settings.
  6. While holding down the Option (Mac) or Shift (Windows) key, select File> Convert> Convert To [Import Format]. The format selected in step 4 is displayed. For example, if you selected Apple Lossless, click Convert to Apple Lossless.
  7. Select the folder or disc with the songs you want to import and convert. iTunes converts all songs to the specified location.

Songs in the original format and converted songs are added to your library.

Songs in AAC protected format purchased earlier cannot be converted. Learn how to update them and convert to a different format.

Additional Information

When you convert a file using iTunes, the original file remains unchanged in its original location. iTunes creates the converted file from a copy of the source file.

When converting songs to specific formats with compression, some data may be lost. Compression can significantly reduce file sizes, so you can store more songs in your music library. However, the sound quality may deteriorate compared to uncompressed source files.

It’s sometimes impossible to distinguish between compressed and uncompressed songs by ear. It all depends on the song itself, speakers or headphones, as well as on the device on which the music is played.

If during data compression a part of the data is lost, this action cannot be reversed. The sound quality in a song converted from a compressed format to a non-compressed format does not increase. This will only cause the file to take up more disk space. An example is converting a song from MP3 format (compressed format) to AIFF (non-compressed format). A song takes up much more space on your hard drive, but sounds just like a compressed file. To take advantage of the formats without compression, you should choose one of them when importing songs.
